My Word Up this time around and I picked a word that I am going to use to carry me through this year. Embrace...to take it all in, wrap your arms and heart around it. you can EMBRACE new things in your life, your family, yourself, small things, big things, life changes. To me it means looking at something, seeing the beauty in it and allowing it to sink in. . .deep into your soul. EMBRACING it. So what are you EMBRACING this year?

and we like to introduce our very special guest Designer, the wickedly talented Sharmaine Kruijver.
Mum to 4 gorgeous girls and married to a fabulous fella, they are my 4 squirts and a dollop of cream! Life revolves around them and any spare time I like to fill with nice things, like chats over a cup of coffee, reading a good book, relaxing in the sunshine, taking photos, learning new things, being artsy, singing loudly, playing with the kids, scrapbooking my thoughts, baking delish things that are eaten in 5 seconds flat, dancing like a mad woman, watching a good movie while snuggling my man, splashing paint around, having phone calls from England where my best friend is ... you know, nice things... the sugar and spice in my life.
and here is Sharmaine's stellar creation:
